+2 on the CTS-V wagon. It does it all. Outside of that and in the realm of reason, I might go with the now defunct Pontiac G8 GXP.

When I lived near the Ocean it was a Land Rover for the Aluminum Body, besides I was going to Tahoe and the 4 wheel helped. Now I'm in Arizona so rust isn't a big problem so almost any SUV will do

Either that or a "small" SUV.

The situation in this thread is hypothetical. I guess that means people could make hypothetical threads where flying cars exist or cars run off of good ideas.
If you would chose a Camry as any car you could have you need help.

My car would be a F40

Trihiker LOL and ditto!

Honda Element 5-speed. I'm OK with being realistic and boring. I would have opted for an imaginary new Suburban but my practical mind is muttering "gas mileage, think of the gas mileage...!"

I can think of several very high-end sports cars (Aston Martin! Aston Martin!) but really I wouldn't use one much in my real life. Even though I'd love to be the sort of person who could. I need something I can hose out after a muddy camping weekend, and something that accomodates dog crates and supplies for dog trial weekends.
